After the cold snap it rained, rained and rained and now its flood flood flood with a bit of wind from lord knows where for good measure - Climate change, personally I have no idea but things are sure as hell messed up!!
The shore count for birds remains much the same species wise but the number has increased rapidly resulting in a visual spectacular on a high tide when huge flocks can be seen often species by species stood out in any quiet corner.
Flamingo huge numbers wintering this year - the bad weather brings many in close range for a decent individual photograph
Dunlin probably the most numerous of all waders at the moment
Great Black-headed Gull a solitary bird usually this one was found in Busaiteen
large White headed Gull but which species - do the bookks help well not really have a guess
Kentish Plover normally busy breeding at this time but the cold and wet has delayed the start
Marsh Sandpiper a rather distant bird
Hamalah after the rain
Great Grey Shrike
House Sparrow a rather pale individual
Desert Lark out but directly under the sun
Clamorous Reed Warbler singing its heart out
Block Rock Thrush
Pied Wheatear the seasons first starting to pass in good numbers
Rufous Tailed Rock Thrush
